A Quick Guide to Eyebrow Transplants

Until eyebrow care became trendy a few years back, it’s safe to say that many people took theirs for granted, thinking that they’d just stick around forever. And that makes sense, given that eyebrow hair loss isn’t as common as thinning hair around the scalp & beard areas. An eyebrow transplant has become the new way to forever fix facial aesthetics. That being said, there are plenty of people that suffer from thinning eyebrows, and if you’re one of those people, you know just how much it can affect your life.

Besides having to come to terms with painted eyebrows as part of your image, you’ll have to accept them as part of your routine. One woman who was featured on the hit cable show The Doctors discussed her routine, saying it takes an hour out of her day to make her eyebrows appear natural. If that seems like a long time already, think about how it adds up over the years. There has to be another way, right? Turns out, there is! An eyebrow transplant is permanent and simply refreshing.

You might have heard of how FUE and FUT hair transplants (both of which we perform at Modena Hair Institute in Las Vegas, Beverly Hills & Newport) have saved countless people’s hairlines. However, did you know those same technologies can be put to use fixing your eyebrows?

Eyebrow transplant procedures utilize both the follicular unit extraction (FUE) method (when fewer grafts being placed), and the FUT method, also known as either follicular unit transplantation or the “strip” method, when there are more than 2-3,000 grafts.

In brief, during this type of FUE procedure, the hair restoration surgeon will first use an incisional blade to create densely grouped incisions using an outline of your ideal brow shape. From there, they’ll extract donor follicles from the posterior scalp (perhaps the chest or back if the posterior scalp isn’t fit for donation), and conclude the procedure by placing them in the transplant area. When the procedure is performed properly, you can expect your full results to appear around six months after it’s all said & done.

We understand this can be a costly procedure, even when the area being worked on is relatively small, but we feel the need to stress that you get what you pay for with a procedure like this. Sure, there are clinics out there that offer their services for relatively dirt cheap, but it’s very unlikely they’ll have an actual physician working on you, and the likelihood of unnatural results & infection can skyrocket. That’s why you need to make sure you have someone with the proper experience & training performing your entire procedure.

We don’t offer anything less at Modena. Dr. Yazdan, a licensed board certified physician, who has had years upon years of experience as a hair restoration surgeon. He makes sure that your hair is in trained & qualified hands, rather than those of assistants, throughout the procedure.

So what else needs to be said? If your eyebrows have been suffering & you’re ready to make a change, the answer to your problems is just a call away. Be sure to visit our website to learn more about what we offer, and reach out to schedule your consultation today!

Eyebrow hair transplants

Hair transplants aren’t just for scalps. Thanks to modern hair transplant techniques, other areas of the body that people often want hair coverage on, like the eyebrows and beard, are now able to benefit from transplanted hair.
Eyebrow hair transplants allow individuals to have a thicker, fuller eyebrow. The process is similar to scalp hair transplants and has had great success. Even celebrities have gotten in on this treatment.
There are many reasons one may want a thicker, fuller eyebrow.
One reason is style. Eyebrow styles have varied drastically over the past century. From extremely thin to unkempt, and everywhere in between. For many, over-plucking and over-waxing has caused the eyebrow to thin and stop growing in. The style for the past 10+ years has been a thicker, fuller brow, and it seems this style is here to stay.
Another reason is a hair loss condition known as alopecia areata. Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition in which the immune system mis-recognizes the hair follicles as foreign bodies and tries to eliminate them.
The last reason is an underlying medical condition. Thyroid issues such as hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism often cause eyebrow hair loss.
Eyebrow hair transplants can help individuals suffering from these causes of eyebrow hair loss have the eyebrows they desire.
Eyebrow hair transplants are permanent and involve taking healthy, growing follicles from the scalp and transplanting them into the desired shape in the brow. These hairs then grow in naturally, as your own hair does.
While make-up is a temporary, short-term option many choose to achieve a fuller brow, this isn’t the right choice for everyone. Men, those not skilled in make-up, or those short on time, may not be able to fill in their eyebrows with make-up.
Permanent or semi-permanent make-up, also known as tattooing or micro-blading is also an option some choose. Tattooing of the brows often leaves behind a solid line in a grayish-black pigment. This doesn’t appear natural or hair-like, and seems to worsen as the pigment fades over time. Micro-blading is often times natural looking as it involves adding pigment in a sweeping motions that makes it appear as individual hair. Unfortunately, it’s not your natural hair and isn’t a permanent solution to eyebrow hair loss.
Eyebrow hair transplants are the only permanent solution to get the thicker, fuller, natural brows you desire. If you’re interested in learning more about this permanent eyebrow hair loss solution, give us a call for a free consultation today.
